I want to tell you about a superb eyelash curler that I have become a little addicted to!
Otherwise, I usually always use an eyelash curler with heat, because it wears less on the lashes because you can apply mascara first and then it works as a heat protection. In addition, you get a very soft bend with heat.
But Laura Mercier has a superb eyelash curler in plastic that gives a very nice and soft bend, and in addition, eyelash curlers do not wear in place as much as those made of metal!
I got it home as a press test a few weeks ago and have used it a lot since then :)
This is what it looks like, small and weighs almost nothing.
It costs SEK 125 Theyouway.se and then an extra rubber cushion is included so that you can change when the first one starts to wear out! The rubber cushion is attached to the underside of the lash bend, so you do not neglect it :)
The handle is folded up so that it is flat when you are not using it, and when you have to bend the lashes, you just fold it down and press when you want it to close.
A tip if you have long lashes is to first bend as close to the lash line as possible, and then also a little further out. Then you get a softer bend!
I have actually had a bit of a phobia for eyelash curlers that bend by squeezing, because the first one I owned (from H&M I think) could squeeze the skin every now and then and it hurt! But with this one there are no problems at all so I can be calm when I use it. It's probably not a problem with most benders today, but I still have a little anxiety from all the times I squeezed in my teens haha.
Excuse my worn nails by the way, the pictures are not brand new so I still have the gel polish from my salon nails here. Do you see the small crack in the thumb nail? What I did not know when I took the picture was that below I had an ongoing infection in the nail due to the crack! So I got a surprise when I removed everything haha :) Be careful with it you who have gel nails!
Here you see how nice bend the eyelash curler gives :) (the post where I show this make-up you will find here!)
